Adds entries to a .cvspass file. Adding entries to this file has the same affect as a cvs login command.

CVSNT Note: CVSNT prefers users to store the passwords inside the registry. If the task doesn't seem to work for you, the most likely reason is that CVSNT ignores your .cvspass file completely. See bug zilla report 21657 for recommended workarounds.
